A four-alarm fire that ripped through an apartment building on the 800 block of Hyde Street, between Sutter and Bush streets, displaced about 75 people this morning. According to SF Appeal, "a call came in around 5:20 a.m. calling the SFFD to a burning four story apartment building." The residents were evacuated safely, with no serious injuries reported.

Tenderblog reports, "The fire apparently spread incredibly fast as people in the street had nearly nothing on showing that they ran from their units as fast as they could and it was even endangering the structures next to 824 Hyde. This resulted in a complete closure of Hyde as well as Sutter within the vicinity of the fire which made it difficult to approach even on foot."

Around 75 residents, most of whom were Academy of Art students, have registered for Red Cross assistance. As of this morning, they have been directed to take shelter at nearby St. Francis Memorial.
